With the summer flowering complete and the wild flowers having set their seed, it was time to cut hay in the sunshine around the Beacon. Last Wednesday a group of volunteers from the Aylesbury Centre carried out important conservation work – removing the long grass to encourage next years flowering of our special flora.
The Aylesbury Centre are a support group formed in 1974 to promote the National Trust. The two hundred members are from Aylesbury and the surrounding district, raising funds and making donations to Ashridge. They also support the N T at Claydon House, and the King’s Head in Aylesbury! Best wishes and thanks to our kindred spirits.
